Replace LSAT with a score based on the following:

Number of years living in the South

times

the number of years living in the North

divided by IQ

times the number of times you've been mistaken for John Laroguette

living in the south: 7
living in the north: 13
IQ: 86
mistaken for john laroquette: 2

my lsat: 2.116

years in the north 26
years in the south 23
                  598
i.q.                4
                  149.5
j.l. mistake       10
         
LSAT = 1495

Yale and Harvard will be begging for me.

so basically, lower the iq, higher the lsat. 

makes sense.

It fits with the general perception.  I've never taken an IQ test though.  I was guessing at mine.

Good one, Jeffjoe!  Doesn't work at all for your neighbors to the North, though...

So here's the Canadian Alternative:

Number of years living in the West (minus) number of years living in the East
Multiplied by the number of Tim Hortons within a 10-block radius of your current residence
Added to your IQ,
Then divided by the number of times you have done a "Bob and Doug McKenzie" impression...

My score would be:
22 - 0 = 22
22*3 = 66
66 + 144 = 210
210/1 = 210, best LSAT ever!!!

UofT, here I come!!!  :D

That's okay, Ruskiegirl!  I don't think there are many Americans who are familiar with the likes of Bob and Doug Mackenzie!

Curious... let's put that to a poll!

I think anybody who needs to have someone prepare their tax returns should be
disallowed from law school.  If you can do your own, reseach IRS code, that should be enough toget you into law school.  The problem with the LSAT is that I am very poor under timed conditions, however at work, I constantly read through tax code like a children's book which is far more difficult than reading and analyzing prior cases, precidents, statutes, etc.
